Abstract

mesophyll protoplasts, either mock-inoculated or inoculated using transcripts derived from lettuce infectious yellows virus (LIYV) RNA 1- and/or RNA 2-cloned cDNAs were analysed by transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and, in some cases, also by immunogold labelling. TEM revealed the main cytopathological effects of LIYV infections in protoplasts infected with RNAs 1 and 2: (a) typical closterovirus-induced (beet yellows virus-type) accumulations of vesiculated cytoplasmic membranes as inclusion bodies, sometimes with associated virions; (b) scattered aggregations of virions within the cytoplasm; and (c) electron-dense plasmalemma deposits. These were not seen in mock-inoculated protoplasts. Protoplasts inoculated only with LIYV RNA 1 contained vesiculated cytoplasmic inclusion bodies, but not virions or plasmalemma deposits. Thus, infection by only LIYV RNA 1 is sufficient to induce characteristic clostero- virus vesiculated cytoplasmic inclusion bodies. However, both LIYV RNAs 1 and 2 are needed for production of virions and plasmalemma deposits.
